Through his efforts, Jackson has developed and acquired a family of companies that address the two largest challenges facing healthcare today: finding the right people and delivering the right information at the right time. By transforming their technology, operations and culture, organizations are realizing their potential through partnership with Jackson Healthcare. The companies within the Jackson Healthcare family provide clinician staffing, anesthesia management, hospital management and healthcare information technology solutions, proven to improve clinical and financial outcomes, as well as increase operational efficiency.
Jackson has owned and operated surgery centers, physician practice management companies and clinics, providing him with a clear understanding of what it takes to run a successful healthcare business. More than 10 of his companies have been market share leaders in their industries. Within its first five years in business, Jackson & Coker became the nation's largest physician search firm and seventh largest executive search company. Jackson has owned two hospitals and ran the first chain of outpatient pain relief centers in the nation. In addition, Jackson ran the third-largest outpatient surgery center, as well as run the largest multi-site allergy clinic in the country. He has been a finalist multiple times for Ernst and Young's Entrepreneur of the Year award.
